Dhul Hijjah

Salamualaykum,

Sh. Muhammad AlShareef sent out a reminder about the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Here it is:

You are probably familiar with the last ten nights of Ramadan, and how virtuous good deeds are in those nights? Yes.

Well, let me introduce you to 10 days that are MORE virtuous, yet many people are not aware of it. It’s the first ten days of the Islamic calendar month of Dhul-Hijjah (which starts on Nov.18)

According to the Prophet, sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, who said, “There is no day more honorable in Allah’s sight and no acts more beloved therein to Allah than those in these ten days (of Dhul-Hijjah)”

In these first 10 days of the Month of DhulHijjah we find:
…the 9th day is the day of Arafah,
…and the 10th day is Eid.

Even if you are not traveling for Hajj, you can still put in extra effort to do more good deeds.

What sort of extra good deeds can you do?
*****************************************
1. Fasting these 10 days
2. Giving more charity during these 10 days
3. Say the “Eid” Takbeers loudly wherever you go. (Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha illa Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Walillaahil hamd.)
4. Try to pray more prayers in the Masjid
5. Increase ties of kinship (visit family, say kind words to them, etc.)
6. Perform more voluntary prayers at home
7. Read more Quran, contemplating the meanings
8. Do more Dhikr
9. Ask for forgiveness more frequently
